Chief defence counsel Barrister Adbur Razzaq has termed the ICT verdict against Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mujaheed as incorrect.
The second war crimes tribunal on Wednesday gave death sentence to Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Mujaheed on three charges of crimes against humanity, while he was acquitted on two charges.
“With due respect to the tribunal, this is a wrong verdict,” said Abdur Razzaq. “They have failed to evaluate the customary law in this regard.”
"They (Judges) have failed to evaluate the evidence. We will naturally appeal against this judgement."
Defence lawyer Saifur Rahman claimed the evidence against Mujaheed in the charges he was found guilty were similar to that of the charges he was acquitted.
